What is a circuit tester:
A circuit tester is a device which is plugged into an electrical socket to make sure it is wired properly. A circuit tester has a series of lights that show the state of the wiring in the outlet, so the technician can verify that it has been installed properly.
A circuit tester is also known as a receptacle tester or outlet tester.
